Starter home: Ballincollig, Cork €245,000

There’s a good, westerly aspect to the back garden of No 5, The Avenue, out in Ballincollig’s Coolroe Heights.

Just shy of 1,000 sq ft, this three-bed family home is in excellent condition inside and out, says selling agent Norma Healy of Sherry FitzGerald, who guides at €245,000.

It’s at the end of a quiet cul de sac in handily-reached Coolroe Heights, at the western end of Ballincollig beyond the new Tesco.

There’s off street parking, and lawns front and back.

VERDICT: Wide appeal for all types of buyers.
